Today is Casimir Pulaski Day in Chicago. He was, of course, one of two Polish generals who helped the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, the other being Tadeusz Kosciuszko. It is also the feast of St. Casimir, the patron saint of Poland and Lithuania. My wife Mary is of Polish and Lithuanian descent, so I think of her on this day.

I finished with Yoshi at midnight last night, went to bed at a reasonably normal time and slept like an infant. I woke up at 8:30 and felt refreshed for the first time all week. It was tough, but I did what a trainer is supposed to do: I helped him learn the material and made a friend in the process. The most difficult thing about the week was not being able to make eye contact with him. I pick up a lot of visual cues from my students, so it was difficult to see if what I was saying made sense to him. I'm thinking that maybe the next time I do this sort of training, I should do it by videoconference.

Numb3rs is on at 9 this evening, and I'll be time-shifting McBride, so I may use the 10:00 hour constructively. I have been neglecting my writing.
